Is anybody else getting dry mouth at night? It's making me crazy! I drink water which makes my frequent bathroom trips even more frequent, bt my mouth s dry a few seconds later. What is causing this and ny helpful tips on how to combat it?

I have the same, but it's all day, I drink loads but it doesn't seem to make any difference. I know I haven't got GD so it's not that, I'm just assuming I need more fluid now that I'm pregnant. Maybe someone else can explain it for us?????

You can buy a spray to alleviate the symptoms. Maybe also get it on prescription. Don't know the cause though.

If it is any limited consolation I have the opposite problem and keeping waking up with a soggy pillow from drooling which is pretty unpleasant too!

yep, dry mouth even though I'm drinking tonnes. i think some of it it cased by pregnancy and some by having put the central heating on!

I had the drooling thing at the beginning of my pregnancy. I'll take the dry mouth over that anyday! I keep telling myself that water is good for me. Must admit my skin is pretty good at the mo too.

I'm getting a humidifier for the nursery. Maybe I'll use it beforehand to see if it helps.

I was drooling in the first trimester, now at 27 weeks this. I hope it's not GD!

I get this too. Sounds crazy but I have notice when I drink a glass of milk before bed I don't seem to get it so much? Strange but true grinA

cheese I saw a program a while back and they did a study that showed that milk hydrates you better than water after exercise.

So, drinking milk may be more beneficial in this instance too, as you've found out!
